Biography

Dubbed "the next Miley Cyrus" in 2008, singer and actress Selena Gomez vaulted to the top of tween stardom thanks to her starring role as a New York teenager with magical powers on the hit Disney Channel series, "Wizards of Waverly Place" (2007-2012). While fame came at a young age, Gomez had already been working in the entertainment business for several years, having started her acting career at seven years old with a role on "Barney & Friends" (PBS, 1992- ). Following her feature debut with a bit part in "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over" (2003), she was discovered by the Disney Channel after a nationwide scouting search and subsequently cast in a couple of unaired pilots before landing "Waverly." Because of the program's immense popularity, Gomez was able to branch out into a singing career, releasing her debut album Kiss & Tell (2009) with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene, while garnering incessant tabloid attention due to her on-and-off relationship with tween star Justin Bieber. While thriving on her Disney image, Gomez broke the mold in a big way with her first adult film, "Spring Breakers" (2013), which contained unflinching violence, nudity and drug use. Regardless of her sudden shift into more risqué territory, Gomez remained one the more popular tween stars in league with Cyrus and Hilary Duff.
